I am an Economist specialising on Behavioural and Experimental Economics. I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow in Economics at the University of Nottingham (UoN), where I also obtained my PhD in 2019. I am also a member of the Network for Integrated Behavioural Sciences (NIBS) and of the Centre for Decision research and Experimental economics (CeDEx).
My main research focus lies at the intersection of decision making under risk and policy applications. As a behavioural economist, I am committed to academic research that translates to practical impact and policy recommendations. In my hitherto research I address questions such as how different modes of information-acquisition can influence risky preferences and behaviour in social dilemmas, how risky choices differ when made from descriptions or from experience, how risk perceptions interact with motivations to vaccinate as well as how risk measure elicitations can become more efficient and accurate. I pursue these questions through a mixture of empirical methods involving lab, online and field experiments and use of state of the art statistical modelling with techniques including Bayesian Hierarchical models. In more recent work, I investigate the topic of political polarisation and specifically, why people are resistant to update their beliefs in politically loaded topics and how this persistence can be mitigated.
